RFC-1 MIDI MIDIgator The Midi Mitigator is a midi foot controller that allows the user to organize your midi system by song titles (or other messages) that are displayed on a large 16 character Alpha/Numeric display.
There are 8 rubber covered footswitches to operate the RFC-1 during performance and a 32 key membrane keyboard for use in editing command strings and function selecting. There are 128 memory locations available allowing 640 command strings. Each string having up to 255 bytes in length consisting of any commands allowed by the midi specification. Also has a set mode to allow 3 different set lists that can programmed in any order desired out of the main memory. The continuous controller input requires pedal with a 75Kohm potentiometer.

For example, I set up a patch that sent sysex commands to every unit in my rack to configure them to the proper MIDI channel and recieve mode in case something happened to hose my setup.
I have also used the unit to start and stop a sequencer. And since the RFC-1 can also send note on/off information I have used it to like bass pedals on several occasions and even had it play chords with the individual notes being sent to different synth modules on separate MIDI channels. Try to do that with any other footswitch!
